I haven't played this yet but I have to comment on the insert. It consists of three sections, one of which is the right size for about half of the cards. The other two sections are the wrong size for the cards - too small. I assume the third section is for the one single playing piece - too big.
Yes. There are only three compartments. Two at the top, the top right one is the same, the top left I assume is the same, too small for the cards. The bottom two there are replaced by just one long one in the box I have.
Thanks, Richard. Made the same mistake as you. Read this thread to add my own stupid rant and saw the picture that showed the insert as it was intended and STILL only had increasing jealousy that I didn't get that one in my box! Your explanation saved the day!
Though I just bought both the base game and the Space Port expansion piece. Weirdly the insert is so bad that even the Space Port can't fit into the odd shaped 4th compartment. And the Space Port piece is smaller in both length and width than the other cards. None of the cards can fit either. Only the little rocket can fit! How odd. How irritating!
